Las Vegas – At least 59 people are dead and over 527 wounded after a gunman opened fire on concert goers in Las Vegas, last night.
A man identified as (Murderer’s Name), 64, of Mesquite, Nevada checked into a room on the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino on September 28. It’s not clear how (Murderer’s Name) spent the last few days at the hotel but last night, as a crowd of around 20,000 people were enjoying the Route 91 Harvest, a 3-Day Country Music Festival, (Murderer’s Name) opened up on the crowd with automatic weapons.
Reports from the scene indicate that many of the concert goers were off-duty first reponders and military. As victims began to fall many of their fellow concert goers jumped into action and began to render aid.
Reports from the scene indicate that two of the dead may be police officers.
Once law enforcement determined where the shooter was they made their way to the room. (Murderer’s Name) reportedly had cameras setup so that he would know when police had arrived. Police said that (Murderer’s Name) took his own life as officers made entry into the room.
Officials said that the shooter had 18 guns, two shooting platforms and cameras setup.
Police have now located Marilou Danley. A search for Danley began after SWAT team members reportedly found her Casio Player’s Card on the shooter. Danley, who is currently outside of the country, is wanted for questioning by Las Vegas police.
Officials are also asking for the public’s help in locating two vehicles with Nevada plates, a Hyundai Tucson with license plate number 114B40 and a Chrysler Pacifica Touring with plate number 19D401. It’s believed the vehicles are registers to the shooter.
Lines have formed around area blood banks overnight.
